Stock Art by Jose Luis Garcia Lopez

One of the last pieces in the massive pile o' stock art I've been putting up here on the Shrine, and one my of my favorites.

The design elements are so nice, so perfectly working as Aquaman's milieu yet not taking away from should be the focus of the piece, the Sea King himself.

I don't recall seeing this on too many pieces of merchandise, though it did show up fairly recently here, and, of course, just yesterday!

Wasn't that the picture used for the SUPER POWERS jigsaw puzzle from the 80s? If it wasn't this pose then it was something very similar...

My wife brought me home those classic DC lounge/pajama pants last night. I think this image is on them!

It also adorns my sons wall. I took some classic comic artwork and blew it up, recolored it, printed it, and mounted it to foam board and hung them on his wall. Aquaman here comes from a Super Powers coloring book. One of the best licensing images of Arthur ever, me thinks.

Ahh...that is a thing of beauty in its simplicity, and in its totality, as it captures just about everything one (should) need to know about Arthur, right there.
